Trust your food is all it should be
As quality food and beverage companies know, food integrity is vital. Ensuring food integrity not only protects consumer interests and public health, it protects your product’s reputation. It can even make or break your brand.
Today’s food products and ingredients may be sourced from a single farm or from producers and manufacturers worldwide. Labeling regulations exist to verify the authenticity and origins of these products as they are exported around the globe. Regrettably, recurring food contamination scandals show that there is always room for error, whether intentional, adulterated, or fraudulent.
Ensuring food integrity means guarding against adulteration (the deliberate addition of false ingredients) and food fraud (false claims about what the product is), and ensuring its authenticity (that the product is from the claimed geographical region).
